I am suffering from low sperm count. what should I take for remedy

Low sperm count is also medically known as oligospermia. A low sperm count is one of the leading causes of male infertility. This is due to the fact that although it only takes single sperm to fertilize an ovum, the possibility of a single sperm reaching the egg is quite low, due to the acidic nature of the vagina. Therefore, men experiencing this condition possess a reduced capacity of getting their partner pregnant. Although, a low sperm count may not be a major health condition, it can affect the emotional and psychological well being of the person experiencing this condition. There are various modern treatment options available for those experiencing low levels of sperm count. A visit to a urologist can help you in overcoming this problem effectively. A urologist will evaluate your condition and offer you the best possible remedy.

In most cases, it is very difficult to ascertain the exact cause of this condition, however the most common reasons are:

  • Damaged sperm ducts: The sperm ducts are the delicate tubes that carry sperm from the testicles to the penis. If the sperm ducts are damaged or injured it could lead to a reduced amount of sperm flow. This condition could also arise due to surgeries and urinary tract infection in men.
  • Anti-sperm antibodies: In this case the immune system attacks the sperms created in response to anti-sperm bodies present in the affected person.
  • Sperm production problems: Health conditions that affect the pituitary gland in the brain, Klinefelter's syndrome or hormonal disorders can also lead to low sperm counts or oligospermia.
  • Varicocele: This condition can be treated effectively as it involves treating a swollen vein in the scrotum, with the help of a minor surgery.

Tackling the underlying cause will help you overcome oligospermia effectively. In addition you can use these simple remedies to boost your sperm count in addition to the treatment prescribed by an urologist.

  • Avoid smoking, drinking alcoholic beverages and indulging in recreational drugs, as all these factors adversely affect the sperm count.
  • Consume plenty of vegetables and fresh fruits, as these help in providing the body with all the necessary vitamins and minerals it requires in order to maintain the neurological system of the body. This in turn will help in boosting your sperm count.
  • Including food rich in omega 3 fatty acid will also help you considerably. Fish is considered to be the best source of omega 3 fatty acid, therefore include a moderate amount of fish to your diet.
